Zlatan Ibrahimovic is officially leaving Paris Saint-Germain’s football club! The Swedish soccer legend announced on June 30 that he signed a contract to join a new team. So who will he be playing with next? Find out right here!
Get ready to watch Zlatan Ibrahimovic play some more soccer…on a new team! After four years of playing striker for Paris Saint-Germain F.C., the 34-year-old soccer star will soon make his mark with another team. Zlatan is apparently very excited about the next chapter in his career — because he proudly proclaimed his “next destination” on Twitter!
Although PSG is surely bummed that Zlatan will no longer be part of their team — he just set a French record last season with 50 goals in 51 matches — he was a free agent, so there likely aren’t any hard feelings on PSG’s part. That being said, Man U fans are probably ecstatic about the addition of Zlatan!
Throughout his nearly 20-year career, Zlatan has won championships in France, Spain, Netherlands, and Italy. He’s also the leading scorer of all time for Sweden’s national team. Needless to say, he’ll be a huge help in Man U’s push for the Premier League next season!
Manchester United failed to qualify for the Champion’s League last season, placing fifth in the Premier League, so Zlatan surely knows how much the team could use him. Plus, joining Man U means that Zlatan is reunited with his old coach, Jose Mourinho, who had major success with Zlatan at Inter Milan. This definitely seems like the perfect fit for Zlatan — and considering he’s such an incredible player, it’s only fair that he signs with a team that he’s excited about!
It’s unclear how much Zlatan signed his contract for, but in his last season with PSG, he was making upwards of $400,000 per week (yes, per WEEK), so he likely will be getting even more with Man U. Zlatan has yet to complete a medical and actually sign a contract with his new club, according to BBC Sports, but he’s obviously ready for his first season with Man U to begin!
